The stylish 2018 Chrysler Pacifica is a game changer in the minivan world.
Much like the first Chrysler minivan, the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica has reinvented the family-hauling genre, giving us a sportier, more luxurious and technologically advanced minivan that anyone would be proud to own. From its sleek, low-slung exterior to its ultra-luxurious dash and interior design, the Pacifica banishes all memories of the old Town & Country, and even makes newer minivans like the Toyota Sienna and Honda Odyssey look outdated. Still present are Chrysler’s brilliant Stow ‘n Go stowable 2nd-row seats.
With its standard 3.6-liter V6 being one of the most powerful engines in its class, the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica delivers an extremely satisfying on-road performance. The V6 is attached to an improved 9-speed automatic transmission that has been reworked to deliver maximum performance and fuel economy. On the open road, the Pacifica’s handling isn’t sporty, but it is competent, with a very comfortable ride, firm steering and excellent brakes.
Favorite Feature: STOW ‘N GO – Unique to the minivan world are Chrysler’s Stow ‘n Go 2nd-row seats. Where other minivans require you to manually remove and store the seats, the Pacifica’s fold flush into the floor. And, unlike the seats in the old Town & Country, the Pacifica’s seats are actually now comfortable on long trips.
Interior: The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica’s interior design speaks for itself, as a quick glance at the pictures shows. What you don’t see is the practicality. The comfortable front, 2nd-row and even 3rd-row seats can all handle adult frames. The Stow ‘n Go 2nd -row seats are finally comfortable and the power hatch opens quickly to showcase an enormous cargo well. Options include a massive Uconnect infotainment screen in front and a panoramic roof.
Under the Hood: Pacifica models get a 3.6-liter V6 engine and 9-speed automatic transmission powering the front wheels, with 287 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque, making it one of the most powerful minivans you can buy. But fuel efficiency still matches the Honda Odyssey on the highway and in combined scores. The engine is a gem, delivering smooth power across its rev range, and it even sounds good doing it. The 9-speed automatic shifts smoothly at cruise, going up and down hills, or at full throttle.
INDUSTRY-LEADING1 REAR-SEAT ENTERTAINMENT: Whatever their age, rear passengers will have plenty of picks to pass the time with the available Uconnect Theatre allowing them to watch movies, play built-in games and connect personal devices to stream content throughout the vehicle. The system enables second-row occupants to bring their digital lifestyle along for the ride and connect simply, either wirelessly or using USB and HDMI device connectivity.
FIRST-ROW CONTENT CONTROL: The Blu-ray®/DVD player with integrated USB port in the first-row centre stack can be used to play movies on the two front-seatback-mounted Uconnect Theatre 10-inch touchscreens. Using the 8.4-inch touchscreen, parents can mute, turn off and/or lock out content displayed on each rear screen.
A MOBILE THEATRE AND GAME CONSOLE: Dual, 10-inch High-Definition rear seatback-mounted touchscreens include apps and games in the second-row Uconnect Theatre, allowing separate media or games to display simultaneously. Seven included games, like checkers, tic-tac-toe and bingo, ensure the crew is entertained along the way.
NO BENCH-PRESS TRAINING REQUIRED: Your essentials may be many, but Pacifica makes getting settled a smooth operation. The enhanced Stow ’n Go® system provides intuitive, easy operation, with a smooth, single-motion fold-and-stow process for the fold-in-floor second- and third-row seats. With rear seats in the upright position, in-floor bins keep sporting equipment, gear, toys and backpacks in their place and in reach.
ALWAYS WITHIN REACH: You’ll stay organized and tidy with clever storage like cup holders, pockets and sliding drawers, while your bag finds the perfect landing spot next to you without getting in the way. The available centre console and stack drawer allow easy access to smaller items, keeping your elbow room clear. Also included are connections for 12-volt and USB charging, lined storage surfaces, and a stylish tambour door on models equipped with the Super Console.
OPEN AND AIRY: Passengers will appreciate awe-inspiring views while enjoying cloud formations or counting stars through the overhead glass. The spacious interior is visually expanded with the light-infused available Class-Exclusive1 Tri-Pane Panoramic Sunroof with third-row fixed glass and power dual-pane first- and second-row sunroof. The sunroof features deep-tinted glass and a power sunshade for the front section, as well as a manual sunshade for the fixed rear glass.
REVIEW: Blurring the lines between crossover and minivan, the award-winning Pacifica is the new face of FCA’s minivan lineup, engineered from the ground up on an all-new platform, delivering superior ride and handling and reduced noise, vibration and harshness. Active Noise Cancellation is standard on all models to further heighten the refinement factor.
No other vehicle can match a minivan’s ability to comfortably ferry passengers and cargo. But the minivan’s utilitarian design and somewhat dorky public image are equally able to put off all sorts of shoppers. For those people, we recommend taking a look at the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica.
